Introducing William Allingham

I was first introduced to Allingham's poetry when I was very young. Some of his works appear in "The Magic Casement" but he has also written poems for adults, too, not just children. Born in Ireland in 1824 (some sources say 1828) he wrote delightful poems like "The Fairies", "The Leprechaun", and "Twilight Voices." This is poetry for the individual who loves delving into the world of fantasy and magic. I hope you enjoy his work as much as I do. His poetry can be read at Project Gutenberg:
